It is important to set the level of motion to an appropriate level for your home and garden as it can become rather annoying if the sensor is triggered every time a stray cat wanders on to your property.

What is a Lumen?

What is the difference between it and a Watt ?

Lighting is all about Lumens. Lumens is now the way to find out how bright a lighted bulb or integrated LED lighting fixture is. And if you need a fixture with a bright luminous personality, its the key to choosing the perfect piece for your lighting scheme.

In short:- Lumens equals brightness and watts do not. Not that watts are bad, but they measure energy use, not light output.

With new energy-efficient LED technology we can no longer rely upon wattage to indicate how bright a bulb is.

How many Lumens do you need?

More Lumens = more light.

Lumens Vs Watts: Output and wattages based on most common products available for each medium screw-based light bulb. Actual light output may vary by product.

CFLs and LEDs use much fewer watts than incandescents with the same brightness.

As a rule, you’ll replace a standard 75-watt bulb with an energy-saving bulb of about 1100 lumens. On the low end, replace a 40-watt bulb with an energy-saving bulb of about 450 lumens. Rely on new bulb labelling standards to show lumen output and help you choose the right brightness for your needs.
